Lowering Your Winter Power Bills with Propane

They call Florida the Sunshine State, and for good reason. For most of the year, we get to enjoy some of the nicest weather you'll find anywhere. There's no better place in the world to kick back on a beach or get in a nice round of golf. As anyone who actually lives in Jacksonville could tell you, though, the winters here can get seriously cold.

November is here, and already there's a bit of a chill in the air. As the temperature continues to drop, unsuspecting homeowners might just find their energy costs begin to skyrocket. Thanks to clean, efficient propane from your friends at Griffis Gas, though, you can stay toasty all winter long and save a little money for your holiday shopping, too.

It's no secret that power usage increases during the winter months. We're spending more time indoors since the weather is so cold and using more power to keep those heaters running. Not only that, water heaters have to work a little harder to produce the same amount of hot water. When you add it all together, people can see huge increases in their utility bills.

Luckily, there's a better choice. Propane is one the most efficient and affordable power sources in the world. Did you know that using a small space heater, plugged in continuously, can cost you more than $100 a month on your electric bill? At those prices, you might as well light money on fire to stay warm. Heating your house with clean, safe, affordable propane helps you save money while keeping your house warm and comfortable for the holiday season.

Electric water heaters are a huge money sink, especially during the winter months. By switching to propane, you can do your laundry, take hot showers, and run the dishwasher as much as you'd like without having to skip gift-giving this year. Propane is a more affordable option and making the switch will pay for itself.

Lower power bills are just one click away. Contact Griffis Gas today to find out how we can save you money and keep your house warm all winter long.

Safety Tips

Tip 5: Don't run out of gas!

Serious safety hazards, such as fire or explosion can result. If your storage tank gets empty or depleted, air and moisture can enter. This can cause a build-up of rust inside the tank. Rust can decrease the concentration of the odor of propane, making it harder to smell. If your propane tank runs out of gas, any pilot lights on your appliances will go out. This can be extremely dangerous if not handled properly.
